Informix Users are Going to San Diego

leave a comment »

It has just been announced that next year’s International Informix Users Group (IIUG) conference will be held in San Diego, California on 22 – 25 April. The IIUG Conference continues to offer incredible value. Sign up soon to get the $695 early bird rate, and if you sign up for free IIUG membership, you even get $100 off that rate. $595 for a conference of this length and quality is amazing value. But you’re going to have to act fast to get this discount rate!

And, don’t forget that San Diego is such a great city to visit. Not only is it a wonderful city with an ideal year-round climate. But it also has fantastic array of attractions like the world-famous San Diego Zoo, Sea World, LEGO land, and the Zoo Safari Park (a personal favorite).

IBM Watson is at the IIUG Conference This Week

leave a comment »

IBM WatsonIBM Watson will be making an appearance at the International Informix Users Group (IIUG) conference in Kansas this week. Fresh from his appearance on Jeopardy, Dr. David Ferrucci will keynote the conference, and talk about his experiences with developing IBM Watson, participating in the Jeopardy gameshow, and other interesting developments in the world of information management. While the keynote is grabbing the headlines, the rest of the conference will be even more interesting for Informix users. As usual, it is full of great sessions. All the recent product enhancements and additions, ensure that there will be some fascinating break-out sessions, including sessions on the Warehouse Accelerator, Genero, Flexible Grid, and more. (If you want to catch up on the most recent Informix release, see my blog post titled Informix Genero Accelerates Development of Mobile and Cloud Applications.) Hopefully you are at the conference. There is a lot happening in the Informix community these days, and this conference is the place to be to get all the latest information. If you could not make it this year, make sure to follow messages from the conference on the Informix Facebook page and from the Informix Twitter account, and of course make your plans for next year’s conference now 🙂
